So Much Fun
I'm a podcast addict - especially when it comes to the scary, creepy, unsolved or macabre - and I just discovered Southern Spirits. So glad I did! Mitch and Leah are hilarious, and create a fun atmosphere for listeners to tag along. The combo of Southern booze reviews and lore is great. Do yourself a favor: kick back with a cold one and give them a listen.
